You should definitely check them out, plus the following:

Should I wait for a Black Friday laptop deal?

Yes, but start keeping an eye out: we'll likely be seeing price drops in the run-up to the big weekend, not just on Black Friday itself.

However, we always advise you to be savvy when shopping, as we expect to see prices drop again as things get more competitive.

Do your research to decide what model and spec you want, so that you can compare across retailers to get the best price and check back here as we'll always update you on the best live deals.

When will the best Black Friday laptop deals start in 2023?

Based on last year, we'll see some impressive price cuts from early November.

However, some of the best deals will be over the Black Friday weekend itself and into Cyber Monday (Nov 24-27).

  • Laptop deals on Amazon – shop here
  • Laptop deals on Currys – shop here
  • Laptop deals on John Lewis – shop here

Is it better to buy a laptop on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

There are no hard and fast rules as to whether Black Friday or Cyber Monday is a better time to buy laptops specifically, as retailers will always adapt each year and compete with each other.

But as a general rule of thumb, Black Friday can be more lucrative for big-ticket items, whereas Cyber Monday sees some great deals on smaller items as things slow down.

Will Apple Macbooks be in the Black Friday 2023 sale?

Sadly Apple does not officially have a Black Friday sale the way that most retailers do, but the brand's Macbooks are usually discounted on other retailers' websites.

Apple does regularly offer gift cards during the Black Friday weekend, so do keep your eyes peeled for these sorts of offers.

If you are thinking about getting some accessories for your Macbook, Black Friday is the perfect time to get decent savings or bundle deals too.

And you can check for discounts on Apple and all major brands on the Sun Vouchers page.
